CADS Viewer
Free software for viewing and printing CAD drawings.

The CADS Viewer is meant for viewing and printing CAD drawings. It also includes basic drawing, editing and printing features, so it is suitable for practicing the main features of the CADS software. The CADS Viewer does not allow saving.

Opens DRW, DWG and DXF files.

The CADS Viewer opens different CAD files. In addition to the CADS own DRW format, it is also possible to open DWG and DXF files with it. The CADS Viewer reads both 2D and 3D files.

The excellent and generally acknowledged DWG compatibility of the CADS ensures that you can open DWG drawings dating all the way from the 1980’s without errors.

Opens IFC data models.

The CADS Viewer also supports data model based designing, which is becoming more common in the building trade. You can open IFC models which comply with the IFC 2x3 standard, for example, architectural, structural, HVAC and electrical models with the Viewer. Several models can be imported into one drawing, whereupon so-called combination models are created.

Versatile printing features.

The versatile printing features of the CADS software are also available in the Viewer. You can print drawings according to paper size (you see easily what fits on a sheet), as pieces (when a large drawing has to be printed in many parts on smaller sheets) or as frame printouts (making use of the drawing frames available in the drawing). With the help of the user-friendly printing settings, you can contribute to the appearance of the printout in a versatile manner, e.g., in relation to line widths.

Predefined layer and printing routines for Electric drawings.

The CADS Viewer includes predefined special functions of layer processing and printing the drawings created with the CADS Electric application. You can easily navigate between the different sheets of the schemas compiled with the above mentioned software. There is a special function available for the easy printing of the different sheets of a schema from one drawing or several drawings.

Also applicable for practicing the use the main features.

You can also use the CADS Viewer for practicing the use of the main features of the CADS software. It should be pointed out, however, that the Viewer software does not contain the functionality characteristic of the field-specific software.
